Had a pretty crazy weekend, I ended up on the roof of a building, just barely holding on to the edge of the roof.
Okay, maybe that’s not really what happened. I did actually hang onto my roof though, only the height was about a meter or 2. This was just a fun little project to test out my chroma keying skills. I tried it once before but that attempt totally failed, mainly because I used a DV camera that wasn’t that great. But now with the HV30 keying was no problem at all. For the background image I used a free image from stock.xchng. I didn’t use any lighting, the screen was placed outside and I made sure there were no harsh shadows so the lighting was even and it worked out perfectly :).
Normally I would just take some music of an action movie(like the music for the ‘Bourne’ trilogy by John Powell), but this time I decided to make the music myself. It’s a very simple track, just a few layers of instruments, most of them software instruments and one track which I played on my keyboard. It’s not perfect at all but I liked making it and now the final piece is something I completely made myself.
(I used YouTube instead of Vimeo this time because I YouTube lets me embed HD videos)
And just because I always love seeing the ‘clean footage’, here’s a frame of the footage without any of the effects:
I will post an update on the ‘End of the World’ project soon, I just took a break from it for a few days because Windows and 3Ds Max were annoying me.
